Almond Butter Cookies {grain & gluten free}

Almond Butter Cookies are crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, sweetened with coconut sugar & packed with protein. They make a healthier treat that is naturally grain & gluten free.

Have your kids ever asked for a cookie for breakfast? These almond butter cookies are a treat you can feel good about giving them in the morning! Packed with protein and healthy fats, they’ll help keep them full and satisfied and you’ll win mom of the year awards for sending them out the door with a cookie! Everyone wins! I can also tell you that even the pickiest eaters (aka my daughter) will LOVE these cookies.

What Can You Substitute for Almond Butter In A Recipe?

Almond butter has a thicker and more dry consistency than peanut butter, but I have found that generally you can substitute other nut butters for almond butter. It does typically change the consistency and texture of the cookie though (not a lot, but just something to be aware of). Feel free to try out peanut butter or cashew butter in place of the almond butter if that works better for you.

How To Make Almond Butter Cookies

These cookies come together very quickly using one bowl.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet.
  • Make sure to leave at least 2 inches in between cookies because they will spread out a lot when cooking.

  • Place cookies in the oven and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven and let cookies sit for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

  • Serve cookies with a large glass of cold milk and try not to eat the whole stack. Good luck!

  • Store leftover cookies in an airtight container.

If you’re on the hunt for other grain and gluten free cookies, I recommend Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles and Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.
